Hot on the heels of the new reveal of Transformers SIEGE Greenlight in box, we have some nice stock photos, care of 蓝色正午 on weibo.com, of Elita One's most verdant teammate! Enjoy these closer looks at Greenlight in both robot mode and vehicle mode. We also have an interesting treat in the form of a comparison between Greenlight's new toy (in both robot and vehicle mode) and some nicely done fan-generated character models from Seibertron.com user Zobovor, who had originally posted his piece on his Deviant Art account. (Please note that these are not official G1 character model sheets, with the robot mode being a recreation of the on-screen appearance of Greenlight and the vehicle mode being a mostly original design, since Greenlight wasn't seen in vehicle mode during her cartoon appearance). Next, we have a nice group shot of Greenlight with all of her accessories, including a Power of the Primes style combiner hand and a repaint of Transformers SIEGE Lionizer as "Dazlestrike," a new Battle Master partner for Greenlight. Dazlestrike also seems to come with a nice fire effect not seen previously on any Transformers Siege Battle Master figure. Finally, we have a nice comparison picture of Greenlight with Power of the Primes Moonracer and Firestar, all three in their robot and vehicle modes! Enjoy these new pictures below!

Springer's Mom has got it going on.

Wait, can this combine as a limb with the rest of the CW etc line, or is the hand just for show?

The empty spot on her car mode where the Autobot symbol has been left off is a bit odd-looking. Not sure without a back shot how I feel about the hand placement in that mode. And then there's the head, which I certainly hope they've just neglected to tuck in... All that said, I'm digging it. The new deco and tooling do a good job distinguishing her from the other two. Her head and colors are amazing. The accessories look fun too.

I wonder if she's mistransformed here, the photographer deliberately fan-moded or her official bot mode has her kibble left down. Either way, when I get her, I'll probably fold all her kibble up like I do with Firestar. It'll depend on how she and Moonracer look together, I guess, since I leave Moonracer's down as a sort of long coat effect.

Did they remove her wrist joints to fold in her hands for alt mode?

Looks that way. The flat kibble pieces are shaped differently as well and there's no ports on the arms anymore. It also looks like the main part of the torso is different too.

So this has been retooled slightly? To lessen the parts count I wonder :-? We'll know more when we get in hand shots

Just a bit of speculation here, but remolding the back flap to be folded down like a cape may be the way that Hasbro has found to repaint Greenlight as Lancer eventually (with a new head, of course). Lancer has the most pronounced “skirt” on her character model, so it makes sense for Hasbro to focus on that to give her a more distinct silhouette from the rest of her teammates.

The only retooled parts are the forearms and head. The torso looks identical. And you can fold down Moonracer's and Novastar's back flaps the same way.

The only thing that would be really cool is if they retool the back flap so it can fold out to become wider.

Actually the head, torso, feet, lower legs and forearms are all retooled.

If not for the humongous backpack, I'd really like this mold and the retooling that has gone into Greenlight. That and, you know, Greenlight of all people getting a mass retail figure.

Anyways.

Looking at that flame effect they really need to make a new Fallen figure with those things stuck all over him

Man I'd give a kidney for a more Dreamwave-esque Fallen, dark paintjob with glowing furnace orange and angry Mazinger-esque face. After ROTF this kind of design went by the wayside, with the 'Megatronus' identity taking over and the flaming design being forgotten

Stick those effect parts on a Siege Megatron retool and we're good to go.

Why not Combiner Wars Megatron? He's bigger and the Fallen was huge in Dreamwave IIRC

I hate this mold, wish they retooled the Arcee mold.

It just doesn't look sleek enough with those awful legs.

Mistransformation dead ahead ;)

When is an Hasbro stock photo not mistransformed? There is always at least one pic per figure/figure set where someone display some mistransformed or misplaced part. >:oP
